Academic and industrial R&D: are they always complementary? A theoretical approach

Oxford Economic Papers, 2013, vol. 65, issue 1, 147-172
Two strategies have largely been adopted by the US government to enhance the scientific academic contribution to industrial innovations and growth: financing academic research and granting academic ideas the same intellectual property rights (IPR) as industrial innovations. In distinguishing the stages of R&D within a dynamic general equilibrium model, it is found that academic government expenditures spur industrial R&D when academia and industry are almost equally efficient in their research capabilities and when firms have a high enough market size. Moreover, it is found that the softer IPR regime granted to academia increases the per capita growth rate of the economy.
